You can slipstream Windows Hotfixes into the XP source. There are MS KB
articles on this, but it may be more simple to use a tool like nLite to
accomplish the task:
Problem is that you need to download all of the hotfixes separately in
order to build your updated installer source. Major pain...
Another option is to use "unattended":
This handy tool will allow you to create unattended OS installation
shares with scripts to complete the hotfix process. Scripts also are
included for common software packages. It is a nice system, and one
that could work well for system building as long as you can tolerate ~45
minutes per system install. (i.e. it is not suitable for bulk imaging
operations such as those at the UVM computer depot).
